Musk gland swelling was found in a six months old Black Bengal buck with profound musk odor at the caudal base of horn. Hemato–biochemical parameters were indicated neutrophilia and lymphocytopenia together with signs of mild anemia. Topical application of 0.05% clobetasol propionate was found effective in reduction of the swelling and odor within seven days.
